McCain then organized a colloquy on the Senate floor with himself, Graham and Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., in which he said, “This president — this administration — has either been guilty of colossal incompetence or been engaged in a coverup, neither of which is acceptable to the American people.”

We’ll see how this Benghazi issue plays out, or whether Obama even tries to nominate Rice for Secretary of State to begin with. But look for a second at the three Republican Senators fighting with Obama over Rice: McCain, Graham, and Ayotte. Those just also happen to be the three most likely “yes” votes for any immigration amnesty plan Obama hopes to get through the Senate.
